Shaping Decision Making With Tableau Software
A great story about Kristin School improving their decision making capabilities utilisng Tableau Software.
Kristin is an independent co-educational school of approximately 1600 students, from Kindergarten to Year 13. A relatively young school, it was founded in 1973 by a small group of North Shore parents and is owned by the Kristin School Charitable Trust. The school is non-denominational and welcomes students from all cultures and backgrounds.
The school has small classes and a proven record of academic excellence. The first International Baccalaureate (IB) school in New Zealand, Kristin offers the IB programme as well as the New Zealand National Curriculum to Junior, Middle and Senior School. Kristin's proud record of success as a leading IB school has allowed students to gain entry to some of the world's most prestigious universities. Kristin is committed to developing an international perspective and a sense of global awareness amongst all students.
Kristin School realised early on that they had a wealth of data across both internal and external databases, which could help them improve their decision making capabilities if utilised correctly.
The reporting of external examination results is a key area for achieving productivity gains. Director of Business Services Hock Gan wanted to streamline the process of collating data and generating reports: “We had Curriculum Managers spending a lot time collating, tabulating and graphing external exam results and presenting them to both the Heads of Faculty and the Senior School Principal. We recognised that if the tasks of tabulating data and generating graphs could be delegated, the Curriculum Managers would be able to spend more time analysing the results and improving curriculum delivery.”
There were also other opportunities to leverage data to improve decision-making throughout the school at both operational and strategic levels.
